Honestly, I think the choice of Rob Reiner is great. He's a great actor and a great director and he brings the same type of prestige that Ron Howard brought in he directed his recent movie on The Beatles touring years.

Now surely there are the people who are butthurt over the fact that Reiner was chosen to do this and not Sean Hannity, but once we get past that, it's pretty neat.

To truly get a deep discussion with the guys I think it would have to been done long form over maybe a year with perhaps different sets of people interviewing each guy separately (perhaps Stamos for Mike, Ray Lawlor for Brian, Lou Dobbs for Bruce,  Tim Heidecker for Al Smiley) and then a final get together with all of the guys perhaps moderated by a big celebrity fan. Maybe, say...Elton John for instance?

I had to re-read this again to get it. At first glance I thought you suggested interviewing those around the Beach Boys. Now that would be very insightful. Ray Lawlor, current wives, kids, Jerry Schilling to name a few.
Letís face it, weíve heard it all from the band members. Much more interesting would be others in the circle.

No 3 in the vinyl chart might have pushed it up.

So many valid points. Taking away the money, the biggest reason the reunion couldnít continue for me is this. Mike would sooner do 173 shows a year as M&B than 73 shows as The Beach Boys. Itís basically his touring DNA.

As Clint Eastwood says, ďI donít let the old man in.Ē

I doubt Brian needs the money however itís been a pretty good small business, almost 20 years, for a dozen or so band members at any time plus a handful of support staff. Whatís not to like?

The Pet Sounds final tour started in March 2016 and is still going. I still think it would be great to sign that off with a few Beach Boys performances.

Although I stand to be corrected, Mike has over the years stated he hasnít listened to Brianís albums, didnít read his biography, nor watched L&M. If I was Brian I wouldnít have worn his crappy shirt either.

I believe it's a 100% absolute that Jeff leaving Brian and joining Mike GIVES THE APPEARANCE of a giant F-you

Getting closer  Grin

I seriously doubt the majority of M&B/ Brian Wilson concert goers could name or care about the sidemen playing in front of them, and likely donít know the names of the actual Beach Boys. Who goes to what group when and how matters not a dot to the audience.
I can still remember after a show in 1992 a Ďfaní telling me Carl Wilson was the father of Carnie and Wendy. That was news to me, and presumably Carl.  Roll Eyes

So as nobody as mentioned it, I will. Mike turns up with a shirt for Brian and Al. Just how hard is it for a 76 year old in a wheelchair to change after undergoing major back surgery? Legit question.


You would expect Brian and Al to wear a shirt which they wore 55 years ago as Beach Boys,  but which is now being marketed as a tribute to only Mike Love, and which has photos of only Mike and not his bandmates sewn into the lining?

Sure. Bad back or not, that's absurd.

If someone had Beach Boys tribute Pendelton board shirts for all to wear, that would be different.

Iíd expect nothing. I asked it as someone 20 years younger without back issues. Please donít imply I am taking one side over another.

Pete Townshend probably told them to do it.

From a few descriptions on Instagram of the event, I don't see any mention of singing. Which makes sense, as that stage setup seems to be for speaking.



Brian and Mike wanted to do a few bars of ĎCell Block Number 9í, but Dave wasnít keen.
15  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Everyone back together for a Beach Boys Q&A for Sirius XM? on: July 30, 2018, 11:39:44 PM
Yupp that's the host

Rob Reiner minus a beard? Ok. But who is in the seat on Brianís right then?
16  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Everyone back together for a Beach Boys Q&A for Sirius XM? on: July 30, 2018, 11:01:31 PM


Is that "Kokomo Brands" bottled water?  Grin

I presume that is Rob Reiner to Brianís right, not Stamos or Jeff. Or is that RR in front? Doesnít look the same from the side.

Tough crowd.

It is a radio show remember. What they are wearing is irrelevant. Mike possibly bought along one for each of them and Brian and Al donít want to wear theirs. Their choice.
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Everyone back together for a Beach Boys Q&A for Sirius XM? on: July 30, 2018, 07:00:39 PM

Is that a certain ex Brit poster walking past?  LOL

At the end of the day Buffet has the market locked in already. Mikes proposing to dilute and confuse the same market and we know he doesnít like that donít we.  Roll Eyes

"My biggest regret is that time David Marks was arrested"

...ĒHe lived across the street from my cousins, so naturally I blame them.Ē
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: David Marks Arrested on: July 28, 2018, 06:08:30 PM
Is it weird that I think it's kind of cool that David Marks got arrested? Like, The Beach Boys still have a little edge left.

(Glad to hear they're doing well, I mean this in a rock band mythology kind of way)

Bring on the R&R album then. Expect Brian to chuck his wheelchair off a hotel balcony next.  Grin
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Everyone back together for a Beach Boys Q&A for Sirius XM? on: July 28, 2018, 02:10:09 PM
Just tossing this out there. Any chance Brian could be announcing his retirement end of the year? That back surgery must have been a b!tch and possibly a wake up call.

Heís earned it.

BEACH BOYS' DAVID MARKS
HE AND WIFE ARRESTED
... In Domestic Dispute

No good vibrations here -- longtime Beach Boys member David Marks was arrested in a domestic dispute with his wife, but it sounds like she was the instigator ... according to law enforcement.
We're told police responded to a dispute earlier this month in the San Fernando Valley between David and his wife, Carrieann Marks. After investigating, cops placed both David and Carrieann in cuffs and hauled them off to jail.

David was arrested and booked for resisting, delaying or obstructing an officer -- a misdemeanor -- and Carrieann got busted for domestic violence against a spouse ... also a misdemeanor. They didn't look too happy in their mug shots ... usually no one is.
The details of the incident in question remain unclear.
However, Carrieann tells TMZ that the whole thing was a misunderstanding, and "we are happier than ever." She says they have plans to celebrate David's 70th birthday in the South of France next month -- and neither have any plans of pressing charges.
